Portal Games Announces Tides of Madness

tides of madness Portal Games, Polish publisher of such games as 51st State, Imperial Settlers, Stronghold, Neuroshima Hex, and Tides of Time, announced a new two-player drafting game based on the award-winning card game Tides of Time.  This new game builds on Tides of Time's drafting and set collection strengths by introducing Madness to the equation. Not only will players be working to draft the highest scoring set possible, they will need to be constantly watching their Madness level each round.  When drafting powerful scoring cards, you will also be gaining higher levels of Madness.  If you draft too much Madness, you will go insane and lose the game immediately.
The following is an excerpt from Portal's press release:
“Tides of Time was a huge, worldwide hit of 2015,” says Portal Games CEO Ignacy Trzewiczek. “Having a chance to work on this title again and play with tweaking rules to come up with new mechanisms was a pure pleasure. I cannot wait to surprise our fans again with this epic and yet small game!” Tides of Madness is for 2 players, ages 12 or older, and takes approximately 20 minutes to play. It is a stand-alone game and does not require a working knowledge of Tides of Time to play. It includes 18 large-format cards (80mm x 120mm), 20 Madness tokens, score pad, pencil, and a rules sheet. Tides of Madness will be released in August at Gen Con 2016 and will be available worldwide at the same time.
